"Allow your husbands to suck your breasts during pregnancy" - Lagos Chief Nursing Sister advises women


A Chief Nursing Sister, Roseline Oladimeji, has advised pregnant women to allow their husbands to suck their brts to prepare them for breastfeeding after delivery.



Oladimeji gave the advice at a sensitisation programme marking the 2021 World Brtfeeding Week organised by Amuwo Odofin Maternal and Child Centre, Festac Town, Lagos, on Thursday, August 5.



"Allow your husband to suck your brts during pregnancy. Apart from bonding, it will help the nipples to be out and make it easier for your baby to latch on. You can also rub vaseline on your nipples at night before going to sleep. It helps to soften it,” the nursing sister said.



The Nursing sister urged pregnant women to prepare their brts during pregnancy to avoid lactation problems after delivery.



According to Oladimeji, the colostrum - the first form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals (including humans) immediately following delivery of the newborn – contains nutrients that help boost the baby’s immunity.



"It is still brt milk,” she added.

Oladimeji cautioned that certain food, herbs and medications could hurt babies if they cross into the brt milk.



She particularly noted that drinking palmwine to improve lactation could introduce alcohol into the baby’s system during brtfeeding.



Oladimeji further cautioned mothers seeking advice from people who are not qualified to take care of babies to avoid causing harm to their children.
